Fixing The Kings

Welcome to a new series as part of our month long celebration of our fourth anniversary. This series will be similar to our concepts page, but will focus on how each of the NHL's thirty teams could improve upon their current center ice designs. Some teams could use a lot of work and for each team we will post 2-3 ideas for how they might improve their ice. Lets face it though, some teams already have a perfect center ice but to be fair we will still look at some alternate ideas. Please let us know which you prefer in the comments below, or let us know if you think it is perfect as is.

First up... Los Angeles Kings!
The Kings introduced a new logo for the 2011/12 season, but the logo at center ice would not be replaced for another two years. While the reaction to the change was mixed, like it or not, it sure made a splash in the aesthetic news of hockey.

While I understand that they would want to have their primary logo at center ice, the "home plate" logo seems to be a miss for a couple reasons. Personally I think the "crown" logo looked better on ice and off, but it also perhaps gave the team their best center ice design in recent history.

Option 1: Here is a design that brings back the old black and white crown logo but replaces the crowns in the red line with the home plate logo.

Option 2: Here is a design that might suit those who prefer the home plate logo but perhaps wouldn't mind seeing the puck a little better upon the center ice faceoffs.

Option 3: For those who think the Kings should stick with the current design.
